Larry Morris Trucking, Snow Camp, NC, was sentenced to 60 months of probation for making false statements relating to the falsification of drivers’ hours of service records on Oct. 10 in U.S. District Court, Greensboro, North Carolina.

On June 20, 2012, Larry W. Morris, president and owner of the company, entered a corporate guilty plea after an investigation revealed that drivers’ records were falsified for the purpose of concealing the number of hours driven as required by Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations.

The investigation was conducted jointly by the Office of the Inspector General of the Dept. of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

As part of the plea agreement, the company agreed to install and maintain a computerized monitoring device on all trucks owned and operated by the company.
